I recently graduated from college with a degree in psychology and will be continuing my education this fall at Duke Divinity School as I pursue my Master of Divinity. I am a certified candidate for ordination [order of Elders] in the United Methodist Church with particular interests in preaching and counseling. I am passionate about worshiping and serving with God’s people in the church & continuing that worship & service outside of the church. In my free time I love to be anywhere in the mountains hiking and also love to run, read, and write. Writing is something I have had a deep love for since about the 4th grade and at age 22 now, it’s safe to say I have not stopped since. When I first created this blog in 2013 I did so as an outlet for myself, but it has since become part of the ministry to which I am called. I write about a variety of topics, but because Jesus is the foundation of my life, he is the foundation of this blog. I write about ministry and mental health because those are both near to my heart, but at the end of the day, whatever is on my mind & heart is what I share. Thank you for taking the time to read the words I write on here & I pray that you are able to find comfort, hope, peace, light, and all things positive through them – may all glory go to God.
Grace & peace, Ashley O.
